Ballymore Novices' Hurdle Background
The Ballymore Novices' Hurdle is the first race on the second day of the festival and has produced some impressive winners in recent times. The likes of Mikael D'Haguenet and Peddlers Cross have won in the past and been leading contenders in the World Hurdle in following festivals.
The race was formerly known as the Neptune Novices' Hurdle and then the Royal & Sun Alliance, and involves a distance of 2 mile 5 furlong with ten hurdles to be jumped. It is open to novice hurdlers aged four and over, and went through a spell from 2000 to 2009 of no ante-post favourite claiming victory before Mikael D'Haguenet justified ante-post favouritism in 2009.
